I am not much of a zoo person, but I visited Basel zoo because while searching online about it, I came to know that the Oceanium/Ozeanium here is just spectacular!!! Sadly, very sadly, the Oceanium is still only on papers and not been constructed yet!!! So anyways, here are some pictures of the place.
These snow leopards were very interested and didn't take their sight off of the meat cylinder hanging in the opposite enclosure for the Rhino! Anyways, after eating this lump a bit, this fella decided to go on a swim.
The aquarium was interesting, esp for kids, this place was a fantasy world! Esp, these 2 fishes really intrigued me - See that image of sand, there's actually a fish on it, in sand color. Go figure! The other one had sparkly golden spots on it. The last one, no, that's not a rock, that's actually a fish!!! There was a section within the aquarium, in sub-zero temperatures, meant for penguins!!!
